My Department has no information on any closures prior to 5 May 1980. From 5 May local education authorities have been required by section 12 of the Education Act 1980 to give two months' notice of proposals to close nursery schools. No such proposals are yet due for decision. The local education authorities for Coventry and for Hereford and Worcester have each published a proposal to close one nursery school.
